Olive Branch Christian School (OBCS) provides a personal environment that allows parents, teachers and administrators to work together for the success of each child. The school provides encouraging teachers that are academically experienced and spiritually qualified, and are supported by a nurturing staff that is deeply committed and focused on each child’s development. It is our goal that students develop a heart for Christ, a mind that discerns, and a body that engages the world from a Biblical and God-centered perspective as they apply the transforming power of the gospel in today’s culture.
OBCS has dual accreditation from Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). As part of ACSI, students compete in events such as Speech Meets, Spelling Bees, Math Olympics, and Creative Writing competitions with other Christian schools. WASC and ACSI also provides ongoing training and support programs for teachers, faculty, and administrators to ensure excellence in every area of their Christian school program.
Since its founding in 1997, Olive Branch Christian School’s mission has been to train the next generation of Christian leaders to be passionate for the glory of God alone. In fulfillment of this mission, Olive Branch Christian School partners with parents in the education of their children, with the goal that students would develop a heart for Christ, a mind that discerns, and a body that engages the world from a biblical and God-centered perspective as they apply the transforming power of the gospel in today’s culture. We are guided in carrying out this mission by the authority of Scripture with biblical excellence, humility, and hope.
Since the school is a ministry of Olive Branch Community Church, the church elders provide oversight for the school. The school is run by the school board, which is made up of a church elder, the Preschool Director, the school administration, and five appointed church members.
